AART provides an outstanding service to the community. Eligible children (i.e., "gap" kids who do not qualify for headstart, but are otherwise not attending preschool) attend free of charge for two 1.5 hour sessions per week. They are provided a book free every week.
Class curriculum is planned and managed by a professional preschool teacher, and assisted by a professional aide and multiple adult volunteers. The result is that children receive individualized instruction and to a much greater extent than would occur in a typical preschool.
The program focuses on 4 year olds who will be entering kindergarten the following year, and most of whom are learning English as a 2nd language.
This program provides kids who otherwise would have no preschool experience a service which enables them to be kindergarten ready and fit in to traditional kindergarten on day one.

This is a great nonprofit that not only helps children from low-income families prepare for Kindergarten, but also gives the children free books to start their own home libraries.
